Creeping alpine herbaceous perennial native to the American Mountain West. Traditional usage (TWM): German Commission E has determined that this Meadow Arnica is interchangeable with Arnica montana for its anti-inflammatory effects. Arnica chamissonis is less elevation dependent than Arnica montana, and yields well from multiple flower stalks. Planted in loose, acidic loam soil, and given a sunny and moist position, this plant will make a carpet of live roots within a couple of years.
